Short Break Horse Riding Holiday UK

Let's book this exclusive, private riding holiday, just for you and your friends. Or as the ultimate gift, non-riders can buy a Voucher for their horsey loved one, and join in the fun for a nominal £100 extra! There will be no other guests at Central Dartmoor's most remote and highest rated luxury accommodation, and no strangers to slow down your ride! Schooled, family-owned, perfectly behaved hunters, and a personal guide, all help create the perfect individual itinerary to suit your own particular mood and skill-set. This is Dartmoor's only riding holiday with direct access onto the high moor. How far do you want to go? Five miles? Twenty-five miles? You choose! Return home to tea and crumpets, rest aching limbs with a glass of chilled sparkling white wine on the patio, and re-live the day over a gourmet four-course dinner served in the private elegant dining room.

Your every need catered for - this holiday is all about you!

Program

Day 1

You arrive to tea and crumpets in Wydemeet's luxurious sitting room, a drink and crisps or anything you like, really! Enjoy supper in a nearby traditional local hostelry or the ultimate in fining dining - both just a ten-minute drive away (not included)

Day 2

A delicious breakfast will consist of anything from a double Full English to poached egg, spinach and avocado on toast. It is served in the private dining room whenever it suits you after 9:00 am - wear your pyjamas if you like!

Set off for your ride anytime after breakfast, stopping off for lunch at a characterful pub. The ride will be at the pace, duration and distance of your choice, and your guide will talk you through the various kinds of terrain and sights you could encounter along the way.

Tea, cake and crumpets will be served in front of a roaring log fire on your return. After that, you can relax with a glass of sparkling white wine, on the patio. Delicious canapes and a sumptuous candle-lit cut glass four-course dinner will be served in Wydemeet's elegant dining room, whenever you say.

Day 3

This second day of wonderful riding and delicious AGA cooked-to-order breakfast will be followed by pub lunch and tea.

Extension options

Make up your own itinerary: additional nights can be booked on a normal B&B basis at 145 GBP per room.

Location

Riding on Dartmoor

Nowhere compares with riding on Dartmoor! Huge skies and empty vistas, there are few boundaries, gates or roads. ​Ride at your own pace across bleakest, remotest moorland, inch past deadly mires, and the spooky prison; ford rivers and streams; race across wide emerald green vistas dotted with purple heather and yellow gorse, skirt sparkling granite tors, as wild ponies, sheep, and cattle gaze; and buzzards cry from the vast skies above!

Most remote accommodation

Wydemeet Bed and Breakfast is probably the most remote accommodation south of the Watford Gap! It is surrounded by 365 square miles of open moorland, bridleways and footpaths stretch in every direction from the garden gate. From your room, you can hear wild ponies neigh over the garden wall! Wydemeet lies at the end of a dead-end lane leading to remotest moor, yet it's just twenty minutes from the A38 highway. Nobody knows it's there. There are no signs nor notices - just complete privacy.
